JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Four new stop signs have been installed at the intersection of Springhill Road and Service Road in Jones county. The new stop signs have blinking LED lights provided with power through solar panels mounted on the signs.
The intersection has been the site of many accidents as well as deaths, the most recent deaths occurred New Year's Day 2013. These new stop signs are an effort to help drivers negotiate through this part of Springhill Road and Service Road.
The funding for the new signs came from the Jones County Supervisors. There are other project slated for other intersections in the county later this year.
